We have a handful of new UPCs and Target DPCIs to share today (via Brickseek) for product slated to arrive with the launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story products in April. The codes relate to Hasbro’s Class A assortment of Force Link vehicles/creatures and their line of Deluxe Hero Series figures. Click on through of the list.
Retailers are wasting no time starting their post-Christmas/end of year clearances. I braved my local Target this morning (Plymouth, MN) and snapped a few pics and grabbed a few items as well. At this particular store, you can find the Black Series Centerpiece Vader and Luke for $14.98 (reg. 49.99), Black Series Rogue One 3 pk for $17.98 (reg. $59.99), Target Exclusive Era of the Force Action Figure 8pk. for $19.98 (reg. 39.99) and Poe Dameron’s Ski Speeder for $19.98 (reg. $39.99). Head to your local store to find deals like these and more, and of course, your selection may vary.
Retailers need to have a good sell-through this holiday season, and from what I am starting to witness the week before Christmas, Hasbro’s line appears to be moving better right now than it was at this time in 2015/2016.
How about in your area? Are things moving, or does it look like a retail disaster? Share your thoughts and store reports after the jump!

good2grow, the kids’ juice brand just released four new character toppers featuring R2-D2, C-3PO, Yoda and Chewbacca. Kids will love playing with their favorite characters, while parents love what’s inside the bottles: nutritious, non-GMO juice that contains no added sugars and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Even better, the toppers and bottles are BPA-free, recyclable and dishwasher safe, providing long-lasting entertainment for kiddos.
The new toppers are available starting this month at retailers including Walmart, Target, Kroger, Albertsons/Safeway, Ahold, CVS and Walgreens.
The Target Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker Ahco-To Island is hitting stores pretty heavily now so you may want to wait, if you have been, instead of ordering online. The reason is that there seems to been a varying degree of “eye deco” applied to the reclusive Jedi Master. This morning, my store put out 4 for the sets (shown above) and some have darkened skin paint apps while others, a much lighter treatment or none at all. You may wish to see a few of these in person before ordering blindly. Click the image avoid for a closer look.
Target.com has updated and is now taking orders for their exclusive 6″ Black Series Luke Skywalker (Ahch-To Island) figure.
Will K. sends in a report that he was able to pick up the Target Exclusive Luke Skywalker Ahch-To Island figure from his store in Chandler, AZ.
Also of note, this set only includes the diecast hand and not a separate plastic hand as shown in the original solicitation imagery.
Update: apparently, the second hand IS indeed included. It is packaged behind the black frame of the packaging. Again, it is a change in presentation versus the original solicitation image.

Starting on December 3 and running through December 9, Star Wars Battlefront II will be on sale at Target for $39.99 ($20 off) for PS4 and XBOX One platforms.
